How to Prepare Broccoli Sprouts

Save

Broccoli sprouts are incredibly delicate, and their light watery crunch is an excellent addition to a salad, or as a raw garnish. Broccoli sprouts are high in vitamin C and vitamin E. Like their mature form, broccoli, broccoli sprouts have also demonstrated having a cancer-fighting compound. A study has shown that three-day-old broccoli sprouts have a higher level of this compound than mature broccoli.

Things You'll Need

  • Obtain 1 cup of broccoli sprouts. If the broccoli sprouts are growing in the ground, cut them with scissors, about a centimeter above the soil.

  • Wash the broccoli sprouts under a light stream of tap water, so as not to damage them. Pat the broccoli sprouts dry with paper towel or a dish cloth.

  • In a cup or bowl, mix 1 tsp. vinegar with one and 1/2 tsp. of olive oil. Stir until combined.

  • Put the broccoli sprouts in a bowl, and drizzle the vinegar dressing onto them, until the broccoli sprouts are lightly coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
